Sports Silhouette Application Instructions
(All Vinyl Decals)
No worries, applying your sports silhouette decal is easy. But, to make it even easier we include a practice decal (and written instructions) with every order. That way you can get the hang of applying it and test out your destination surface before putting your it up.
Remove the masking tape sections from the edges. Place your sports decal where you want it to go. Tape one side (edge) to the surface. Lift up the other side of the sports decal using the tape as a hinge. Peel of the white backing paper. Place the sports silhouette back onto the surface. Rub it down with your hand. Peel off the clear transfer tape from the bottom of the image to the top. You are done! It is that easy.
The Long Version...
VINYL DECAL PREP: Clean the destination surface and dry it thoroughly. Please allow a newly painted surface a month to fully cure before application (it remains oily for a while). Remove or cut the small masking tape sections along the edges.
1. Place the sports decal on the destination surface. Level and center it. Pay special attention to level and center the silhouette itself and not the backing paper/transfer tape.
2. Tape one edge of the backing paper/transfer tape to the destination surface. Lift up the other side using the tape as a hinge. At a tight angle, slowly peel away the white backing paper underneath exposing the sticky vinyl. The vinyl decal should stay adhered to the clear transfer tape. If it starts to separate, help it stay together.
3. After the backing paper is removed, slowly roll the vinyl and transfer tape onto the destination surface starting from the tape-hinge side. Go very slow and help it go on evenly with something that has a flat edge (clipboard, book, credit card, etc.). Work out any air pockets along the way. Afterward, rub down the decal (to adhere the vinyl decal to the destination surface) and remove the tape hinge
4. Gently peel away the transfer tape starting from a corner pulling at a tight angle across the sports decal. Be patient and go slow. If the decal begins to lift up help it stay down. Once the transfer tape is removed, rub the sports decal down one last time to make sure it is well adhered. You are done!
